Lainey has already moved on from Henry Golding to another new crush from Crazy Rich Asians. I wholeheartedly approve. (LG)
OK, let me see if I got this story straight (no pun intended): Dude tells Kim Kardashian that he’s not into her; she insinuates that he is gay; the Internet mob accuses Kim Kardashian of being homophobic; she resorts to that old standby, “All my best friends are gay!” I don’t know why I’m going to bother deciphering this, but: Kardashian is probably not homophobic but accusing someone of being gay is shitty but also if you’re not attracted to Kardashian, keep that shit to yourself (or at least, don’t advertise it to Kardashian). Cool? Cool. (Celebitchy)
A photographer — who happens to be Carly Simon’s brother — caught Bill Murray on one of his bad days, and that photographer allegedly got assaulted by Bill Murray. (Dlisted)
You know who is not having a fun week? Debby Ryan and Alyssa Milano, who actually have to go out and promote that terrible, terrible Netflix series, Insatiable. I doubt they even mean what they say while defending it. But hey! They look great while doing so. (GFY)
Hey! Here’s a fun irony. Ivanka Trump’s make-up artist is … a Mexican immigrant. (The Root)
Nate Silver examines every single Democrat nominated for a major office this year (811 people in primaries for Senate, House, or Governor), and there’s some pretty good intel here. The big takeaway is that women are winning 65 percent of the time when they run against men. (538)
Laura Ingraham is not racist! She just prefers white people, that’s all! (Wonkette)
Megyn Kelly doesn’t think that Jimmy Kimmel should host the Oscars anymore because he’s alienated half the country (and by that, she means Republicans, who actually constitute only 26 percent of the country, and only about 5 percent* of them actually care about the Oscars). Also, the Today show probably shouldn’t have hired someone who legitimately did alienate half the country. (*Made Up Stat) (Mediaite)
Speaking of awards ceremonies, shut the fuck up, Chost.
This is fantastic: Here’s journalist Jeff Yang talking about watching his son, Hudson (who plays the lead in Fresh Off the Boat) grow up on TV over the last five years. (THR)
Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day are making a new series together. (FSR)
Those Space Force logos are bad, and someone ought to be ashamed. (Pop Sci)
This is a little NSFW but the Kate Beckinsale comment is totally worth you getting busted in your cubicles.
I’m with Joelle: Environmental concerns aside, this is still the dumbest product I have ever seen.

In case you’re wondering which Disney princess is Goth? Well, it’s not rockabilly Snow White. (Lainey)
Authorities want to question Sean Young in connection with a burglary, but like, she was stealing laptops from a productions office. She probably just wanted to edit a movie. She was going to bring them right back. I swear! (Dlisted)
How many times have you almost died? Maggie O’Farrell recounts near fatal encounters from a childhood illness she was not expected to survive to her daughter’s severe chronic illness in I Am I Am I Am: Seventeen Brushes with Death. Lollygagger doesn’t think she has ever come across a book quite like this. "I think some of the power in this collection of essays is how mundane some of her brushes with death are." (Cannonball Read 10)
